Tartan madness

“I have always loved tartans – such an ornamented type of weaving, so vivid in colour, and such a masculine aspect. But actually, I think tartans can be feminine or masculine.”- Christian Louboutin

Like Louboutin, I love tartans. Trust me, there were even times when I wore it literally every day. Tartan is a special form of expression. It is an important element of the grunge, punk and alternative scene. It is a magical piece of clothing because you can style it however you wanna. You can create a schoolgirl look, a business look or a “normal daily look”. I could count on so much more possibilities.

I became attracted to tartan when I was obsessed with Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood. In several collections of them, Tartan is a major fabric. When I started to wear tartan at that time, I felt like I was wearing something super extraordinary.

Fashion can’t be fully alive without a little piece of grunge. In this look (if it’s not completely obvious) the tartan is the piece of grunge.

I combined my old tartan dress by Wal G with a girly lace blouse by Zara. For the finishing touch I added my oversized Urban Outfitters Herrington Jacket. I literally adore its tartan fabric inside.

Maybe this post has inspired you now to wear some tartan. Or you are already loving it as much as I do.
